Follis would dominate the first quarter by scoring 3 touchdowns, making the score 27-0 in the Liberators' favor.
”It felt good; we had good terrain to run on, it wasn’t as wet as I thought it would be,” Follis said. “Our offensive line made some big holes for me to run through and then you just make people miss. Our team made some really good plays tonight, Rafe and I connect a lot. It takes a toll on your body, I’m gonna sleep good tonight.”
Peavey had 229 yards passing with 2 touchdowns for the Liberators.
“We came out on fire from the start,” Peavey said. “Our guys caught the ball and Kolby did a phenomenal job with it on the ground. It’s our goal to score 50 every game and our coaches prepared us well for tonight’s game.”
